local_pizzaRelaunch digital3mpire - going blockchains

the digital3mpire was and is always changing. as a hybrid dynamic and fluid entity, it is continually reinventing itself. at the beginning, the physical space and the shows there were the central location and part of the platform. In the course of the last few years this has changed, the focus of the activity is now on the network.
And so in addition to the gallery and the cooperation projects, the NFT label to explore the blockchains was added to the digital3mpire.

local_pizzaSeeing the original 'spectaculartakeoverbattle'

When I was assembling my collages on my computer about 15 years ago, it was always clear to me that these pictures on the screen were the original ones. The material from the internet, the tools aka the software and the final form as a file, all of that was always digital and it was always original. Then printing out the pictures to bring them to the whitcube always seemed strange to me. and so i built this frame out of wood and adhesive tape with a screen and a mac mini in it, so that the visitors in the exhibition room also had the opportunity to see the original pictures on the screen.
Now that #NFTs are just gaining ground, this perspective is finally becoming a universal reality and that's why I'm celebrating this development so much. A remarkable coincidence: the picture was taken 2006 in the art space b-l-a-s-t, where the gallery Falko Alexander is today.

visibilityDrifting and Digging: Birgit Jensen’s Flugblätter at Clay Street Press Gallery

Christopher Carter wrote on ÆQAIa Cincinnati-based e-journal for critical thinking about Birgit Jensen’s Flugblätter at Clay Street Press Gallery

"At the risk of violating Kuhlmann’s directive against signs, the molding of negative space may be the profoundest image of the show, and the shrewdest statement of the contributors’ collaborative accomplishment."
